It's not just the Patriot act. Something like this might happen - http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2009/04/data-centers-ra.html

I think this is a great opportunity for the European telcos. As they migrate to IP based networks and turn exchanges into low grade data centres that are sized for IO (rather than computer or storage) then there will be a lot of resource left on the table that can be sucked into more regional clouds.

Data Protection

European companies probably already use their own versions of cloud computing. They may simply not desire additional pressure from American companies to change their systems. It is foolish of American companies to assume their products will be met with messianic enthusiasm by European vendors.
